Richmond Area Club/Society

Some fellow reefers and I have been discussing forming a Richmond area "club". Initial plans aren't for anything really formal like WAMAS (i.e. no speakers, no dues etc.) mainly just tank tours, trading frags, discussing set ups, getting to know some other people in the area, and the like. I'm just trying to get feel for how many people are interested. Questions, comments, concerns?


P.S. Who wants to help move a 120?

Well TG, set up a SW tank!

cal,

We've already got 6 or 7 people interested so far through personal communication, and a similar thread was just posted on RC so hopefully some more people will chime in. We are looking at having a preliminary meeting at someones place, possibly my apt. after the move is finished, to discuss some of the details and toss around some ideas. I'll let you know when/if a date etc. is finalized.

I see no reason to segragate the two. Tankgirl if you know some fellow local FW folks then there could be two brantches of such an orginization. One for freshies and one for salties.

Ok its been a while. We are still interested in doing this, but its been hectic trying to get everyones schedules to cooperate, with jobs, classes, spouses etc. Anyone have any suggestions on public meeting places etc.? We were thinking something along the lines of Knights of Columbus meeting hall, public library conference room etc., possibly a willing LFS. Comments, questions, concerns, ideas? At the very least, we would like this to turn into a frag/information swapping network.

I own a LFS in hopewell and you guys can definitely use my place. I also have a few customers that might be interested. The only problem is that my place is very small and don't have too much room. If you guys dont' mind you can use it.

I have been thinking of doing this for a long time now. I know several LFS that would be happy to support such a group (I would think).

The name I was thinking of is RAMS (Richmond Area Marine Society)

What do you all think? I went to WAMAS once and it was pretty much a joke. Even the speaker looked as tho he was going to passout from talking so much. If I go to one of these things, I want trading, buying, selling and tons of chatting. I don't want dues, fees, admission. Its suppose to be fun, not boring.

Anyone intrested in helping getting this thing off the ground?
